October 20, 2021 - Sisters In Law: A Five-Part Series Honoring Justices Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Theatre Or and Tattered Cover present Honoring Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a free webinar series designed as community outreach in association with the Colorado premiere of the play Sisters In Law by Jonathan Shapiro, produced by Theatre Or in association with Elzabeth Weber, Dale Franzen, and Don Franzen. Based on the bestseller by Linda Hirshman, the play explores the relationship between Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first two women to become Supreme Court Justices. Its purpose is educational - to provide the public with more insight into these iconic women and their careers, accomplishments, and legacy. It is also designed to illuminate the artistic process in bringing this double biography to life on the stage. The play runs September 25 - October 31 at the John Hand Theater in Lowry.
